    ------------------------------XHPRS Brings Back Rich 'Brother' Robbin------------------------------

    BROADCAST COMPANY OF THE AMERICAS Classic Hits XHPRS (THE WALRUS)/SAN DIEGO has added RICH "BROTHER" ROBBIN to its lineup. He'll do the 2-7p air shift beginning MONDAY, FEBRUARY 11th.

    ROBBIN's lengthy career includes stops in LOS ANGELES, PHOENIX, DETROIT, PORTLAND, NASHVILLE, MEMPHIS and TUCSON, but he is best-known and remembered for his tenure in SAN DIEGO at KGB, KBZT and KCBQ.

    "ROBBIN will be a perfect fit for THE WALRUS’ fun, upbeat presentation," BCA Programming-OM MIKE SHEPARD said. "RICH was one of the legendary disc jockeys who inspired me to get into radio, and we had the great fortune of working together to make K-BEST 95 a dominant station in SAN DIEGO in the '90s. I’m thrilled to have him back; his energy, enthusiasm and ‘fun-factor’ will make a great addition to THE WALRUS drive home."

    "There I was, sitting at the beach with my website (www.richbroradio.com) and three old classic cars, safely retired (or so I thought) minding my own business and here came this wonderful opportunity to return to the air on 105.7 THE WALRUS, which I just couldn't refuse," ROBBIN explained, "and it's even more fun today!"

    XHPRS is one of several Tijuana, Mexico-based stations that aim at San Diego radio listeners.
